The Advantages Of Starting A Poultry Farm Business

The huge potentials in poultry business has remained untapped for a very long time, until recently when more people realized the benefits of poultry farming and got attracted towards it. 

Commercial Poultry farming has become one of the biggest agricultural businesses worldwide because people prefers white meat more to the red meat.

Poultry Farming business is one of the very profitable and beneficial farming businesses around.

 Gone are the days when poultry farming was only for the poor, when chicken is only adopted and kept in the backyard by the poor commodities living in the rural slums or villages.





Poultry farming business is still heavily untapped as more than 80% of our daily consumption is said to be imported from another countries. 

Imagine the profit potential of supplying chicken and chicken products to over 60% of Nigerians, A Population of over 120 Million People?



There are multiple ways of making money from a poultry business.







1. The Eggs - Egg is a good source of low-cost high-quality protein, providing 6.3 grams of protein (13% of the daily value for protein) in one egg for a caloric cost of only 68 calories. 

The structure of humans and animals is built on protein. 

We rely on animal and vegetable protein for our supply of amino acids, and then our bodies rearrange the nitrogen to create the pattern of amino acids we require. 

Everyone needs at least two eggs daily.



These put the production and supply of chicken eggs in a very high demand. A crate of egg is currently sold around N800, MULTIPLY that to how many crates you produce!



2. Day Old Chicks - Raising day old chicks has become very popular because you only need a viable batch of eggs for hatching, a reliable incubator and a working knowledge of poultry incubation.



Also selling day old chicks can be done locally as thousands of poultry farmers are looking for it everyday. 

Your hatchery could be just what people in your community needed as a nearby source of day old chicks.



Many people would like to raise chickens themselves, rather than to buy pullets but are unable to get or hatch enough day old chicks. One is sold at approximately N200.



3. The Chicken - You don't need to be told about this, chicken meat is currently commands the highest demand in the market. 

If you have it for sale, you may be able to have all the money you may ever need.
